Cripplegate Foundation and Islington Giving Director, Sarah Benioff has been appointed trustee of the Association of Charitable Foundations (ACF)
ACF is the membership body for UK foundations and grant-making charities. Driven by a belief that foundations are a vital source for social good, their mission is to support them to be ambitious and effective in the way that they use their resources. They do this through the provision of policy and advocacy, research and information, and a wide-ranging programme of events and learning. Their 390 members collectively hold assets of around £50bn and give over £2.5bn annually.
I am very excited to be joining the ACF Board, and look forward to helping to bring in the perspective of smaller, place-based funders such as Cripplegate Foundation, and London’s Giving partnerships such as Islington Giving, as well as learning a lot ourselves from other funders on the Board.
